Unless the Contract is marked about a particular item staying at the property, you can generally take items that are easily moved and don’t cause any damage to the property when being removed.
This includes standard personal items such as:
- Washing machines
- Pot plants
- Televisions (however if they are on a bracket, the bracket will need to stay).
There are a number of fixtures you can’t take with you (unless marked specifically as an exclusion on the Contract for Sale of Land). These fixtures are described as items that are attached to the property In such a way that they become part of the property.
Examples of fixtures what you can’t take with you:
- Smoke detectors
- Hot water systems
- Solar panels
- Air conditioners
It is important as a vendor you specify any exclusions on the front page of the contract, this will save any doubt between you and the purchaser.
